Beautiful grounds and Castle I can’t recommend it more. Had such a lovely day there and was really well organised. Perfect

Ian picked our group of 6 from the Southampton cruise terminal in his comfortable van. He is such a wonderful young man with interesting background and we immediately connected with him. He organized the tickets to Highclere aka Downton Abbey and told us interesting information about the place. As one of our travel companions had mobility issues, Ian kindly got him a wheelchair and pushed our friend in it. As we had time after our tour before the restaurant opened for lunch, Ian suggested that he could take us to Windsor for lunch. We immediately agreed as none of us had been there. He took us to a great pub directly across the street from Windsor Castle Walls. After our lunch he dropped us off at our hotel at Heathrow Airport. We highly recommend his services.
